The Most Coachella Person at Coachella Was That One Dude in Joe Jonas's Band DNCE

As many of us spend today flipping through the endless Coachella style diaries of eager and well-meaning fashion websites, I am yet again paralyzed by the fatigue of what we as a society have deemed “Coachella style,” a manner of dressing that can hardly be called style at all, but more specifically a “uniform” or a…

Here Are All the Whos and Ahhs On the 2016 MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards air tonight and, as expected, the red carpet was full of some A-list celebrities and a lot of randos I had to Google. I’ll let you surmise who are the whos, because we’re really here to look at the ensembles; some whos really know what’s up in that realm, thankfully for us all. Above, Cara…

Endless Beauty at Black Girls Rock, iHeartRadio & the Academy of Country Music Awards

Whew, it’s been a whirlwind weekend of awards red carpets: Black Girls Rock on Friday night in New York, and then on Sunday night the iHeartRadio and Academy of Country Music Awards aired simultaneously on your television, a true music-lover/remote control paradigm. Because the red carpets were voluminous,…

New York Queens Step It Up On Blondie-Judged RuPaul's Drag Race

Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Chris Stein guest-judged RuPaul’s neon blow-out on Monday night’s Drag Race, and in homage, the remaining nine queens were tasked with forming ‘80s-influenced bands—punk, or synth, or “party” in the style of the B-52s. That little experiment had varying results (though three drag queens…

Everyone Is Appalled By How Trash Lanvin Is Without Alber Elbaz

On Friday, Lanvin showed its first collection in 14 years not designed by the beloved genius Alber Elbaz—the creative director whose talents resurrected a dusty Parisian label and turned it into the global standard-bearer of elegance—who was ousted last year after a dispute with the brand’s primary shareholder. And…

Vetements Solved the Problem of Where to Stash Your Coat in the Club

Two nights ago, I attended an issue launch party for an art magazine in a small basement club that had the distinct ambience of a chic ancient Roman holding cell. Part of this very studied atmosphere included a garment rack at its entrance—basically, an unminded, self-serve coat check where anyone could hang their…

Balmain Is Basically Becoming the Clothes Kim Wore Before Kanye KonMari'd Her Kloset

An important turning point for Kim Kardashian, and arguably the culture, was the point early on in her courtship with Kanye West when she allowed him to essentially KonMari her closet.

Metallic Gowns, Tons of Black and Icy Stares at Vanity Fair's Annual Oscars Afterparty

The fashion at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, the most relevant of all the irrelevant awards shows, was as tasteful and blandly elegant as expected. Charlize Theron looked gorgeous in red, Kerry Washington dared to be different in leather, and Best Supporting Actress winner Alicia Vikander killed it as the Oscars…

The 10 Least Boring Looks From the Boring-Ass Oscars Red Carpet

The Oscars red carpet: where originality goes to die. Stylists, working with designers, seem to have bled out every bit of actual style from their clients, which is how we ended up with several years of impeccably, boringly dressed actors in gowns approximating the dress code of winter formals or deb balls. (At the …

Once Again, British Red Carpet Beats American Red Carpet at Wearing Clothes & Looking Cool

Remember the Grammys a few weeks ago? The red carpet was fine. Lady Gaga, who just five years ago arrived in a dinosaur egg, wore Marc Jacobs. We expect musicians to get a little looser, to play with their artistic leeway in their looks more than actors, but for the most part they wore some variation of evening gown,…

FKA twigs Performs 'Good to Love' on The Tonight Show, Is an Angelic Vision

FKA twigs debuted “Good to Love” live on The Tonight Show Wednesday, where she last fully cowed host Jimmy Fallon in 2014 with an artful performance of “Two Weeks” and a giant swathe of silk emanating from the heavens. For this performance, though, she went minimal to match the song, using light and gleaming white…
